The White House will release its first virtual reality video, a 360 video experience of the First Family’s hike in Yosemite. National Geographic, Facebook, Oculus, and FÃ©lix & Paul Studios produced the video of the trip, which was timed to coincide with the centennial of the National Park Service.
The full video will be released in August and will feature footage of the trip, plus a conversation between President Obama and Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher.
As preview, National Geographic has released an interactive panoramic photo on its Facebook page.
